“Hopscotch is the best way to express your imagination! Most other "learn to code" apps just make you complete boring levels with 4 "move" blocks, but in hopscotch you have the freedom to create anything, which is amazing.” — BuildASnowman, Hopscotcher

“This taught me sooooo much about basics of coding. I have been able to make some cool games I hope to learn more as I advance this app was extremely helpful and easy to learn.” — BestBeginnersCoding, Hopcotcher

“I had ZERO background or programming experience. I personally checked all 8 or 10 of these blogs about recommendations. And Hopscotch was the most intuitive and interactive. It’s not like you’re just playing video games. My daughter loves it!” — Mom, S. to daughter, 8

“I am a 4th grade teacher who LOVES your app. Our students have been introduced to coding through it and I am impressed with the creativity they have shown and the skills they are building while creating projects.” — Kelley, 4th grade teacher

What’s New

Version 3.34.0

Earlier this year we released the width and height blocks, and you went nuts making incredible 3D simulations. With this release, your 3D projects will be better than ever. Read on to find out why:

New Features
- Never have your old project break again. The hopscotch player is versioned so you can be sure that your game will be pegged to the stable release you made it on.
- Your two-player games are getting an upgrade. Super-smooth multitouch brought to you by Nazari, Hopscotch's newest developer.
- The community is safer and more fun than ever. You can browse amazing projects made by hopscotchers in sixteen new curated channels.
- After seeing a lot of you try to edit your project and instead of pressing home and exiting it instead, we rearranged the buttons, so they live where you expect them. You're welcome!
- That handy about page we always ask you for when you write to us, is now a tiny bit easier to find.

Bug Fixes
- Now you can always switch accounts to use the account you subscribed from on iTunes.
- The shapes are more shapely and no longer have padding around them. This will make set width and height waaay easier to use. As a bonus, we also added a couple of new shapes.
- When you used the "set text" block, your objects would no longer resize correctly. Fixed!

As always, shoot us an email at hello@gethopscotch.com with any questions/comments/suggestions. You might show up in the next release notes!

Editors' Notes

“Coding” may sound a bit dry and daunting to some newcomers, but those are the last things that come to mind while using Hopscotch. The app lets you have as much fun making games as playing them, and with its colorful, friendly interface and stacks of help and tutorials, kids (and grown-ups!) can build all kinds of apps—while learning the fundamentals of programming. Best of all, you can share your creations so anyone with an iPhone or iPad can play them too!

Fantastic but

This app is great but there’s 1 problem so I worked really hard on this game for about a week and the nest day I wanted to work on it some more and it just deleted my account I obviously got triggered by this so I haven’t used the app for about 2 months now so plz fix this 👍👍

Mercy killer. ,

Need a better drawing pad!

One would purchase a yearly subscription but for two things one (as yet!.) I know one of these is not available yet.
1.) A better drawing pad.
2.) The capability to make app like thingy bobs.
One has just started a mouth (kiss 👄 resuscitation.) subscription and thus a little disappointing is the lack of a good art pad like sketchbook! (/other!.).
Sorry 😐! But one is a creative person and art plays a big part in ones creativity.
